I've been meaning to buy a good pair of driving shoes for awhile now, but I'm afraid of buying online without fitting them. I need to find a local store that has a selection.

Yeah, I don't know. Sometimes even pushing the clutch in doesn't eliminate the noise. It can be embarrassing at times when people are drooling over your car and then they hear it rattling like an old...
